The Benefits Of Home Automation
Technological advancements are all around us, but would you invite technology into your home? Yes, you already have a television and all of your other tech devices, but what about actual home technology? Home automation is making headlines as these devices not only have the ability to provide homeowners with the utmost convenience, but home automation also yields substantial homeowners insurance discounts. To get you excited about all that home technology has to offer, we have found the top trends in home automation for 2015:
- Water – What homeowner does not want to curb their water use? If you have already installed low-flow shower heads and toilets you are on the right track, but there are more technologies that are ready to assist. EcoWater Systems HydroLink Plus is a new Wi-Fi enhanced system that will help you monitor water usage in your home. For example, it alters you in times of continuous water flow and when you are in need of softener salt. This insight allows you to stop leaks before they become full blown issues and alter your water usage accordingly.
- Heating & Cooling – Home automation technologies allow you to adjust your thermostat from your smartphone, avoiding unnecessarily leaving your air conditioner on all day so that you can come home to a cool home. With home automation, you can simply click a button on your phone before leaving the office.
- Security – Even top notch security systems do not have the ability to send you alerts to your smartphone. With home automation that connects to your security system, you can receive alerts when packages are delivered and when the kids arrive home safely from school.
